Stuck in Fictional Worlds

Hi! I'm Stacie. Recent college grad and foreign language teacher. I spend too much time reading and playing video games and cosplay is one of my favorite (and most expensive) hobbies.
This is just my life as it happens :)
I'm sure you will see lots of Dragon Age, Doctor Who, Teen Wolf, Disney, Buffy, maybe some Psych, anime, and the list goes on!

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

I haven’t seen this yet, but this article has a trailer for season 6 of Community. It’s probably the best cut trailer I’ve seen. Check it out!

So remember that TV shirt I bought from Qwertee?

This one:

http://www.qwertee.com/product/kingdom-hearts-oathkeeper-and-oblivion

Well apparently some people were unhappy with the quality and some shirts got sent out that weren’t up to par (I didn’t have any troubles with it, but maybe I need to look at it again). From what I can tell, it just seemed like a minor mistake. 

Thanks to that defect, everyone who bought a shirt is getting another one. Just like when the apartment lost my Doctor Who 50th shirt (which now 4 of us own… I got one in their grab bag special, bringing my number of those shirts to 3…), I now find myself in possession of 2 of the same shirt. I’ll figure out what to do with it later… But that was kinda cool to find out today. Thanks you Qwertee for the extra shirt!

Also I got paid ahead of time for pet sitting. $200 for watching 2 dogs for 4 days and $50 for feeding 3 cats for 3 days. Now if I can get paid for watching Izzy the dog, I’ll be able to figure out how much I made this month in pet-sitting alone.

I also did some food testing at OSU. I got $10 for Dutch Bros just for eating a rating some rice crackers. I hope I can do this more often while I’m in Philomath.

By the way, did you guys know work for a temp agency and when I interviewed for a parking job for OSU football games, they told me they want to make me a supervisor? I’m super excited because I just realized that all of the trips/cons I’m going to are expensive!

Anyways that’s my update for today! I’m gonna go shopping and final mail that package to Audry that I keep forgetting to do… Oh, I also have been playing a lot of Katamari Forever. It’s super fun! I suggest it to any Katamari lover who hasn’t played it yet. It’s like a mix of the first two games (music included!) plus some new fun levels! I made a katamari last night that was 1.7 million km. So that was cool. I’ve been using Katamari to help me cope with all the negative feelings I’ve been having… 

All and all it’s been a good week for me.

This is the incident report that the Ferguson police just produce. Now if you don’t know, this morning they FINALLY named the killer of Michael Brown as Darren Wilson. Along with naming Darren as the killer, the Ferguson police are now trying to link Michael Brown with a robbery that happened supposedly MOMENTS before. 

Michael was killed at 12:01 and this robbery was at 11:54. 

There are so many questions.

  1. We’ve seen the surveillance photos they’ve produced that shows someone who looks like Michael being aggressive with a store owner over an apparent box of swishers. (If you don’t know, Swishers are cigar papers you can pick up for like…2 for .50.
  2. They are saying that Officer Darren Wilson was responding to that robbery.
  3. They are calling it an STRONG ARMED ROBBERY
  4.  A strong armed robbery is using, involving, or threatening the use of physical force or violence to gain an objective:
  5. Okay, got that bullshit out of the way
  6. The dispatch tapes that were released mention NOTHING ABOUT A ROBBERY.
  7. NOT ONE WORD
  8. THE ONLY THING MENTIONED WAS A SHOOTING AND REQUEST FOR CROWD CONTROL.
  9. THAT’S IT
  10. So how did Officer Wilson FIND OUT about the robbery? 
  11. They’ve now listed Dorian Johnson (THE ONLY OTHER EYEWITNESS WHO WAS THERE) as the second accomplice to the robbery. 
  12. The same Dorian Johnson who has been trying (in vain) to talk with the Ferguson Police Department about Michael’s Death since LAST SATURDAY.
  13. So this man who is this SECOND SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY CASE IS PLEADING WITH YOU AND IS ALL OVER NATIONAL NEWS AND YOU ARE REFUSING TO SEE HIM. BUT HE’S A SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY. OKAY
  14. When Officer Wilson sees both Michael and Dorian his initial reaction was "GET THE FUCK ON THE SIDEWALK."
  15. Not any kind of reaction dealing with them being robbery suspects. 
  16. From some of the pictures (I’m not going to post them due to the family’s wishes) if you compare the footage from the store and the footage from Michael’s death, he’s swapped from Nike sandals to Sneakers. This red hat cannot be found (this is speculation).
  17. If the reason Office Wilson approached them was because they were suspects in an robbery WHY DIDN’T HE CALL IT IN? WHY DIDN’T HE FOLLOW PROCEDURE? WHY WOULD HE ROLL UP ON ROBBERY SUSPECTS IN HIS VEHICLE? WHY DID IT TAKE 6 DAYS FOR THIS TO BE ANNOUNCED?

I implore you. IMPLORE YOU to take a look into the presented facts of the case. This is just an incident report, we do not have access to the investigative report. There has been no reports presented of Michael’s autopsy and this report is contradictory of the second eye witnesses report.

None of this makes sense. 

They are putting Michael on trial to dehumanize him, villify him, to make him less human to justify his murder.

And at the end of the day, LET’S JUST SAY MICHAEL DID DO THIS…is petty theft (it was like 5 swisher sweets they say. That’s a two dollars and fifty sense) IS HIS MURDER, HIS EXECUTION, THIS UNARMED SURRENDING TEENAGE BOY, justified by this?

NO.

It’s not.

This is murder. Don’t let them put Michael on trial for HIS DEATH.  

Another thing to keep in mind is that this police department has a (recent!) history of trumping up charges (effectively claiming it’s illegal for black men to bleed when they’re beaten by cops), mishandling or possibly even intentionally tampering with evidence, and committing straight-up perjury to cover up their abuses toward innocent black civilians.  

Darren Wilson was working for the department when that incident took place.  He’s said not to have a disciplinary record, but that’s a meaningless claim for a corrupt department that repeatedly breaks the law to sweep its officers’ racist misconduct under the rug.

I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”

Thank you for this

So yeah, the amount of people who don’t mind my drawings popping up on their dashboard has the little kid in me dropping his jaw. Sending an ask wishing good morning to each of you would take almost three hours. Then it wouldn’t be morning anymore; that’s how serious the situation has become.

This is a good point in my life for celebrating stuff like this, considering I’m going to start applying for proper artist jobs for the first time in my life. So after every failed interview, I’ll be able to console myself: “Maybe they don’t like me, but hey, a THOUSAND people want to see what I draw next!”

GIVEAWAY

To let you guys join me in the celebratory business, The Qwerty Prophecy will be holding a giveaway. Drawing-y stuff, since I’m assuming that’s what you guys like around here.

PRIZES

The randomly generated lucky person will receive a free commission and a high-quality print, i.e. they can tell me to draw something and instead of being a lazy bastard, I’ll actually do it, and post a tangible copy to them so they can draw moustaches on it.

Two others blessed by the lord of dice will receive a print of their choosing, from any of my previous non-commissioned drawings and fanart.

RULES

To enter, reblog this post. Each reblog counts as an entry. The giveaway ends on SEPTEMBER 5TH. I will contact the winners via the ask box; if their box is closed or their reply takes over 24 hours, I’ll re-roll. After the announcement of the winners, the prints should arrive as soon as the printing company and the mailman allow.

I just made a checklist of everything I need to have done before Kumoricon (including an additional cosplay if I have time… which I don’t… but I really want to make it. I might enter it in cosplay chess in addition to Eevee so I have a backup choice…) I dont’ know if I am going to be able to make it… There are people counting on my time (since I am the only one without a job and living in a place where I can actually create props) to finish our group. 

Also, if I do decide to bring so many cosplays… where am I going to put them? I need so many different shoes… and props take up space… and wigs… oh my god… Why am I so fixated on making so much? (that would be because I’m leaving for Japan in 4 months…)

… Okay, after creating this whole list… I’m going to bed.

If anyone wants to see my progress or has any questions for me, let me know!
